REPORT DESCRIPTION:

The goal of this research was to look beyond conventional approaches to stormwater infrastructure and examine the effectiveness of various decentralized controls that use natural elements to dampen stormwater surges. Specifically, the research examined highly distributed real-time control (DRTC) technologies for green infrastructure, such as advanced rainwater harvesting systems, dynamically controlled green roofs, wet actively controlled detention basins, and controlled underdrained bioretention systems. The research concluded that a business case could be made in support of DRTC technologies for municipalities and private entities. Published by WERF. 96 pages. Online PDF. (2014)
